Deadliest Warrior: Legends announced

PSN/XBLA brawler gets a sequel.

A follow-up to daft 2010 beat 'em up Deadliest Warrior arrives on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade this July, MTV Networks has announced.

Developer Pipeworks Software returns, though the game - titled Deadliest Warrior: Legends - will be released under MTV's newly launched 345 Games banner.

The sequel will feature all-new warriors, new fighting options, a more precise projectile system, more arenas and a new campaign mode.

Ology claims that there'll be twice as many fighters as before, with new combatants including William Wallace and Shaka Zulu.

For the uninitiated, the franchise is a spin-off of the US TV show of the same name that takes various famous warriors from history and attempts to determine who would win in a scrap. High brow stuff.
